***** Please note that the infographics/charts of the Avian Influenza A(H7N9) virus presented were updated with public source information to 0001hrs 6 May 2013 CET/EST *****
In the past 48-hours of reporting there has been one new case of H7N9 with no new fatalities. This brings the total for China to 129-cases including 27-deaths and Taiwan to 1-case without loss of life. Note that all totals include asymptomatic cases.
To date 20.8% of all known cases have been fatal. For context the Case Fatality Rate of SARS was 10.9%.
There were 2 discharges over the past 24-hours, both from Shanghai. With the additional two discharges the recovered total now moves to 38 (29.2%). Asymptomatic cases remain at one (0.8%).
The most recent fatality reported by Chinese media was on the 3rd May 2013 via Xinhua.
Cases by Region (including Taiwan) to 5 May 2013
Here is a look at the Cases by Region data which closes out Week 11 of the avian influenza A(H7N9).
Zhejiang continues to have the most cases (46) with 19 recovered and six deaths.
With 33-cases and 13-deaths Shanghai has the most deaths and the highest Work-In-Progress Case Fatality Rate, currently 39.4%. That municipality also had the first case.
Beijing still has the only confirmed asymptomatic case.
Taiwan has the only non-mainland China case, that of a man who was working in Jiangsu and flew home before displaying any symptoms.
Fujian had the most recent confirmed case.
Lastly, for the first time since the H7N9 became a known issue there are now more case outcomes than there are patients being treated. Of note is that positive outcomes outweigh negative outcomes.
